Over the years, Matt Parker has probably been the biggest contributor and helper with JohngysBeat.com. He is always looking for photo opportunities to use on the site. A couple years ago at U.S. Cellular Field, he took a page from my sister Nancy's book by posing with an inanimate object, namely the Lady Liberty White Sox statue.
In earlier days, I would have accuse him of hitting on Miss Liberty. Would that make Lady Liberty a cougar? Being that he is happily attached now, I cannot accuse him of that.
So what is with him posing with a statue? Who cares. It is a cool Chicago picture from a big White Sox fan.
Wait a minute. What time is it? Matt might not be a Sox fan now. Which way is the wind blowing? Never mind. Actually, at the time, he was clearly a Sox fan (unless he had another team's shirt under the Sox jersey). That's really all that matters.
No, actually, all that matters is that Matt gave me a cool picture. I don't really care which team he follows on any given day. Like the wind in Chicago, it can change any minute.
